The previously mentioned window banks are also over sized and run about 10 feet in length and their height is six feet in both the living room and bedroom.

The open kitchen features stainless Bosch appliances, plus a generously proportioned eight foot Ceasarstone island, prep space and lots of cabinet space. The master bedroom has an oversized walk in closet and wall to wall floor to ceiling windows. The terrace is directly off of the bedroom through a glass door and there's plenty of room for a table and chairs. The bathroom has marble floors and a super deep soaking tub.

Monthlies total about $656.
For architecture buffs, Clermont Greene Condominium is an Ayn Rand/Howard Roark meets Phillip Johnson/Glass House kind of building. The buildings designers' took a page from modernist architects in its combination of a steel structure with oversized glass windows allowing for maximum light. 174 Vanderbilt is one of the two buildings associated with the formally named condominium, Clermont Greene. The two buildings together comprise two small six story buildings and a total of 75 units. The second building's address is 181 Clermont which has its own entry way and concierge. The two buildings are separated by a manicured garden with a reflecting pool.
The building is located moments from our celebrated Calvert Vaux & Frederick Olmstead's 19th Century Fort Greene Park, BAM, great shops, and tons of restaurants like Roman's, Metta, Walter Foods, and so much more. Plus, Wegman's has just recently opened in the Navy Yard! There's a Ferry Stop where one can commute to Manhattan, other areas of Brooklyn, or Queens. It's easy to commute to Manhattan or get around to anywhere in the area due to the proximity of subways and buses.
